One day my wife and I decided that it was time to move to an adult home/assisted living center. We shopped around and decided on Whittier Place in Ghent. The food is great, the staff is good, and housekeeping is wonderful, nursing staff is attentive to all the resident’s needs. Activities are available, we have numerous events throughout the year. The home is run by a vibrant, remarkable, caring Administrator, Meghan Kelley. If you want to get things done go to her, her door is always open. We are pleased with our decision thus far, we have resided here at Whittier Place going on 3 years now, and highly recommend to anyone looking for assistance to look into this home. A plus is that they also have a Skilled Nursing Center and rehab on the premises should you need it. Cordially, Doris A. W. & Joseph W.

Four Massachusetts Whittier Health Network facilities rated 5 Star by US News & World Report.

 

 

On February 26, 2014 U.S. News & World Report released its Best Nursing Homes 2014, and we are proud to report that four Whittier Health Network Facilities in Massachusetts have earned 5 Star “Best Nursing Homes in 2014” ratings:

• Oak Knoll Healthcare Center (Framingham, MA)
• Whittier Westborough Transitional Care Unit (Westborough, MA)
• Daniels House Nursing Home (Reading, MA)
• Nemasket Healthcare Center (Middleborough, MA)

Congratulations to the Administrators and Staff who made this happen! Alfred Arcidi, Senior Vice President of Whittier Health Network, said the ratings are “proof of our organization-wide commitment to provide safe, high-quality care, treatment and services on an ongoing basis.”

Kenneth Cegelski, Regional Administrator at Whittier Health Network, said that our staff is always focused on the company goal to “continuously raise quality and safety to higher levels.”

Now in its sixth year, U.S. News’ Best Nursing Homes is designed to help the millions of Americans who will spend time in a nursing home in 2014. Best Nursing Homes provides data and information on care, safety, health inspections, staffing and more for nearly every nursing facility in the U.S. Each facility’s profile displays health and fire violations, performance in important clinical categories and how much time nursing staff spends with residents.

To create Best Nursing Homes 2014, U.S. News drew on data from Nursing Home Compare, a program run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the federal agency that sets and enforces standards for nursing homes. U.S. News awarded the “Best Nursing Homes” designation to facilities that recently earned the agency’s highest overall rating of five stars.
